    This class teaches additional practical applications for those who carry concealed handguns.  It's a great class for those with new Concealed Carry handgun permits but limited follow-up training.  It is NOT the class which qualifies you to obtain a NC Concealed Carry permit.

    This is a Level 2 class.  Successful completion of Practical Concealed Carry Level 1 or advance approval of the instructor is required to attend this class.

      PURPOSE: Provide the student with additional knowledge on which to build their skills in the art of self-defense with a handgun. Students will leave this course with an intermediate tool kit of drills and practical knowledge, to include weak hand shooting, unconventional shooting positions and shooting on the move.
      • Topics: 

      1. Safety Briefing
      2. Range Commands
      3. Class Philosophy - Mindset, Situational Awareness, training with purpose, efficiency. 
      4. Review of weapons system choices. 
      5. Fundamentals of Marksmanship - Stance, Grip, Sight Picture, Trigger Control, Recoil Management, Running the Slide, Press-Check
      6. Drawing from holster and safe re-holstering
      7. Dry-fire and Live-fire drills, including  
        1. Ammunition Management - tactical and emergency reloads. 
        2. Recoil Management
        3.  Malfunction Clearing
        4. Weak hand shooting
        5. Multiple target engagement
        6. Unconventional shooting positions
        7. Use of cover and concealment
        8. Shooting on the move
      8. Debrief/After-Action Discussion
      • REQUIREMENTS:
      1. An open mind, willingness to take instruction and the ability to challenge pre-conceived notions we’ve all learned from YouTube instructors and Hollywood.  This course teaches only practical, real-world techniques.
      2. A functional, compact or duty-sized semi-automatic handgun with at least three (3) magazines (Glock 19 or larger).  Subcompact (Glock 26, SIG P938) handguns or revolvers are permitted, but discouraged, as you will spend likely more time loading magazines than shooting. If shooting a subcompact, at least six (6) magazines are recommended.
      3. A strong-side holster with a sturdy belt and multiple-magazine carrier.  Appendix carry, small of back, cross-draw, purses, belly bands and shoulder holsters will not be permitted in this class; however, all these forms of carry will be discussed.  It is more efficient and safer to teach the class with everyone using the same gear.  For safety reasons, no holsters with active retention (SERPA holsters) will be permitted.  A molded Kydex holster manufactured specifically for your model of firearm is highly recommended, but leather holsters are also acceptable.  If you are in doubt, please contact the instructor prior to class.
      4. At least four hundred (400) rounds of factory-loaded, copper-jacketed ammunition.  No reloaded ammunition or steel-core (armor piercing) rounds are permitted.
      5. Red-dot optics are permitted (and in fact encouraged).  Red dot sights should be sighted in at ten (10) yards prior to class.  If you have questions about how to properly sight-in your optic, contact the instructor prior to class.
      6. Weather conditions are often rapidly changing in North Carolina, so please dress appropriately and in layers.  Class is held rain or shine, as you cannot pick the weather for your gunfight.  Closed-toe shoes are required. 
      7. A packed lunch is recommended – food options are limited in the DPRC area and lunch will be held to a strict 1-hour time limit.
      8. Water, lots of it.  Hydration is important, as this will be an active class.

        An NRA Precision Pistol match is a three aggregate match, with 90 shots fired during each aggregate. One aggregate is fired with a .22 rimfire, one with any centerfire 32 caliber or larger, and one with a .45 caliber pistol.  Most competitors use two pistols, one .22 rimfire and one .45 ACP 1911-style, to shoot the entire match.  New competitors often us a 22 for the entire match to get the feel for how things work.  Most use semi-automatic pistols but revolvers can also be used. Slow fire will be at 50 yards using B-6 targets.  Timed and rapid fire will be at 25 yards on turning targets using B-8 targets.   Competitors may fire only one or two of the aggregates if time or physical constraints make this a better option.

        Sight in and practice begins at 9:45AM and the match begins 10:00.   This is an NRA Approved match.

        Practical Defensive Carbine, Level 2

        Logo Description automatically generated

        • This class teaches practical applications for those who want to become more familiar with their carbine weapon system.  

        • PURPOSE: Provide the student with foundational knowledge on which to build their skills in the art of self-defense with a carbine. This is an intermediate-level course that builds upon the skill learned in the Level 1 course, and it is not a “stand and shoot” course – this is a very active class and requires the ability to shoot from all positions learned in Level 1 as well as shooting while moving.  Successful completion of the Practical Defensive Carbine Level 1 or prior approval of the instructor is required for this class.

        • TOPICS: 

          1. Safety Briefing

          2. Range Commands 

          3. Review of your Weapon System and basic marksmanship

          4. Dry-fire and Live-fire drills, including 

            1. Understanding “battlefield zero” and use of optics 

            2. Ammunition Management - tactical and emergency reloads

            3. Malfunction Clearing

            4. Strong- and Weak-Side shooting (rifle and pistol)

            5. Shooting on the move

            6. Use of Cover and Concealment

            7. Transition from Primary to Secondary weapon

            8. Team movement

          5. Debrief/After-Action Discussion

        • REQUIREMENTS:

        1. An open mind, willingness to take instruction and the ability to challenge pre-conceived notions we’ve all learned from YouTube instructors and Hollywood.  This course teaches only practical, real-world techniques.

        2. Sturdy, close-toed shoes (no flip-flops or sandals).  Running shoes/sneakers are acceptable, but over-the ankle boots are recommended due the uneven ground.

        3. A functional carbine rifle, typically of the AR-15, AK-47 or comparable pistol-caliber carbine (such as a CZ Scorpion) and a functional compact or duty-sized pistol.  This class is based upon the AR-15 rifle platform, but techniques can be adapted to other weapons systems.

        4. A sturdy sling fitted to your rifle and a strong-side, outside the waistband holster for your pistol.  Belt-mounted magazine holders for both pistol and rifle magazines are required, and a battle-belt or chest rig is highly recommended.  This is not a “concealed” weapon course.

        5. At least four hundred (400) rounds (rifle) and two hundred (200) rounds (pistol) of factory-loaded, brass-cased and copper-jacketed ammunition.  No reloaded ammunition or steel-core (armor piercing) rounds are permitted (we will be shooting steel targets).  Steel-cased ammunition is not recommended for the AR-15 platform, as it has a tendency to jam if your rifle is not clean.  Please double-check your ammunition if you are using the AK-47 platform – the vast majority of 7.62x39mm ammo is steel core (including the “bi-metal” kind) and cannot be used on steel targets.

        6. Red-dot and magnified optics are permitted (and in fact encouraged).  All rifle optics are recommended to be sighted in at twenty-five (25) yards and pistol optics are recommended to be sighted in at ten (10) yards prior to class.  If you have questions about how to properly sight-in your optic, contact the instructor prior to class.  Back-up iron sights are recommended, but not required.

          1. If you have battery-powered optics, please bring extra batteries.  I haven’t had a class yet where somebody’s batteries didn’t fail.

        7. Weather conditions are often rapidly changing in North Carolina, so please dress appropriately and in layers.  Class is held rain or shine, as you cannot pick the weather for your gunfight.  Please be aware that red-dot optics are rendered mostly useless when they are wet, so back-up irons are strongly recommended if you have a red-dot.

        8. A packed lunch is recommended – food options are limited in the DPRC area and lunch will be held to a strict 1-hour time limit.

        9. Water, lots of it.  Hydration is important, as this will be an active class.

            Legal Refresher Course – NC Concealed Carry   

            If you’ve had your permit for a while , you could probably use a refresher.  New gun laws have gone into effect……don’t be caught off guard.   

            As a NC CCH permit holder, it is your responsibility to stay current with the laws surrounding concealed carry. 

            Class is also recommended to any firearm owner.  It is important that every gun owner understands the laws of self defense and the use of deadly force to protect yourself or others.

            Gun Owners Responsibilities

            Americans enjoy a right that citizens of many other countries do not—the right to own firearms. But with this right come responsibilities.  It is the gun owner’s responsibility to store, operate and maintain his or her firearms safely.  It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that unauthorized or untrained individuals cannot gain access to his or her firearms.

            It is the gun owner’s responsibility to learn and obey all applicable laws that pertain to the purchase, possession and use of firearms in his or her locale.  Guns are neither safe nor unsafe by themselves.  When gun owners learn and practice responsible gun ownership, guns are safe.   

            Cost: $50.00  (NC CCH study Guide Included)

            Class Time: 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm approx

            Topics Include:

            • Review North Carolina Statutory and Common Laws

            • The Legal Use of Force

            • Stand Your Ground vs Castle Doctrine

            • New laws effective July 1, 2023

            • Places you can and cannot carry your pistol

            • Gun Safety and Storage to protect minors 

            • NC S.A.F.E (Secure all Firearms Effectively) Program   

            • Federal laws and Interstate Transport 

            • Expanded list of states with Reciprocity (The good states and the bad states)  

            • TSA /Bus/TrainTravel overview

            • Gifting and Transferring a Firearm 

            • Brandishing or Self-Defense 

            • What to do if a firearm is stolen

            • Permit Renewal Information

            • After the Bang: What to Do Before The Police Arrive Presented by US Law Shield.  During the last 30/45 mins of the class you will be instructed by a representative from US Law Shield and will have an opportunity to receive a 30 Day Free Trial Membership.  

            This is a Non-Live fire class and does not satisfy the requirements to apply or renew your NC Concealed Carry Permit

            An NRA Precision Pistol match is a three aggregate match, with 90 shots fired during each aggregate. One aggregate is fired with a .22 rimfire, one with any centerfire 32 caliber or larger, and one with a .45 caliber pistol.  Most competitors use two pistols, one .22 rimfire and one .45 ACP 1911-style, to shoot the entire match.  New competitors often us a 22 for the entire match to get the feel for how things work.  Most use semi-automatic pistols but revolvers can also be used. Slow fire will be at 50 yards using B-6 targets.  Timed and rapid fire will be at 25 yards on turning targets using B-8 targets.   Competitors may fire only one or two of the aggregates if time or physical constraints make this a better option.

            Sight in and practice begins at 9:45AM and the match begins 10:00.   This is an NRA Approved match.

            This class teaches additional practical applications for those who carry concealed handguns.  It's a great class for those with new Concealed Carry handgun permits but no follow-up training.  It is NOT the class which qualifies you to obtain a NC Concealed Carry permit.

            PURPOSE: Provide the student with foundational knowledge on which to build their skills in the art of self-defense with a handgun. Students will leave this course with an intermediate tool kit of drills and practical knowledge, to include weak hand shooting, unconventional shooting positions and shooting on the move.

            LOCATION: Clubhouse: 8-11. Range 1: All Day

            TOPICS: 
            1. Safety Briefing
            2. Range Commands
            3. Class Philosophy - Mindset, Situational Awareness, training with purpose, efficiency. 
            4. Review of weapons system choices. 
            5. Fundamentals of Marksmanship - Stance, Grip, Sight Picture, Trigger Control, Recoil Management, Running the Slide, Press-Check
            6. Drawing from holster and safe re-holstering
            7. Dry-fire and Live-fire drills, including  
              1. Ammunition Management - tactical and emergency reloads. 
              2. Recoil Management
              3.  Malfunction Clearing
            8. Debrief/After-Action Discussion
            • REQUIREMENTS:
            1. An open mind, willingness to take instruction and the ability to challenge pre-conceived notions we’ve all learned from YouTube instructors and Hollywood.  This course teaches only practical, real-world techniques.
            2. A functional, compact or duty-sized semi-automatic handgun with at least three (3) magazines (Glock 19 or larger).  Subcompact (Glock 26, SIG P938) handguns or revolvers are permitted, but discouraged, as you will spend likely more time loading magazines than shooting. If shooting a subcompact, at least six (6) magazines are recommended.
            3. A strong-side holster with a sturdy belt and multiple-magazine carrier.  Appendix carry, small of back, cross-draw, purses, belly bands and shoulder holsters will not be permitted in this class; however, all these forms of carry will be discussed.  It is more efficient and safer to teach the class with everyone using the same gear.  For safety reasons, no holsters with active retention (SERPA holsters) will be permitted.  A molded Kydex holster manufactured specifically for your model of firearm is highly recommended, but leather holsters are also acceptable.  If you are in doubt, please contact the instructor prior to class.
            4. At least three hundred (300) rounds of factory-loaded, copper-jacketed ammunition.  No reloaded ammunition or steel-core (armor piercing) rounds are permitted.
            5. Red-dot optics are permitted (and in fact encouraged).  Red dot sights should be sighted in at ten (10) yards prior to class.  If you have questions about how to properly sight-in your optic, contact the instructor prior to class.
            6. Weather conditions are often rapidly changing in North Carolina, so please dress appropriately and in layers.  Class is held rain or shine, as you cannot pick the weather for your gunfight.  Closed-toe shoes are required. 
            7. A packed lunch is recommended – food options are limited in the DPRC area and lunch will be held to a strict 1-hour time limit.
            8. Water, lots of it.  Hydration is important, as this will be an active class.

A strong-side holster with a sturdy belt and multiple-magazine carrier.  Appendix carry, small of back, cross-draw, purses, belly bands and shoulder holsters will not be permitted in this class; however, all these forms of carry will be discussed.  It is more efficient and safer to teach the class with everyone using the same gear.  For safety reasons, no holsters with active retention (SERPA holsters) will be permitted.  A molded Kydex holster manufactured specifically for your model of firearm is highly recommended, but leather holsters are also acceptable.  If you are in doubt, please contact the instructor prior to class.
            4. At least three hundred (300) rounds of factory-loaded, copper-jacketed ammunition.  No reloaded ammunition or steel-core (armor piercing) rounds are permitted.
            5. Red-dot optics are permitted (and in fact encouraged).  Red dot sights should be sighted in at ten (10) yards prior to class.  If you have questions about how to properly sight-in your optic, contact the instructor prior to class.
            6. Weather conditions are often rapidly changing in North Carolina, so please dress appropriately and in layers.  Class is held rain or shine, as you cannot pick the weather for your gunfight.  Closed-toe shoes are required. 
            7. A packed lunch is recommended – food options are limited in the DPRC area and lunch will be held to a strict 1-hour time limit.
            8. Water, lots of it.  Hydration is important, as this will be an active class.

            DPRC will be hosting a swap meet from 10AM to 2PM on Sunday, October 6th for club members and guests. Only club members may sell, while both guests and club members may purchase. This is intended for shooting (and archery) related items - optics, parts, ammo, shooting gear, reloading equipment and supplies, and of course, firearms.

            Sellers:

            All firearms must be handled safely at all times! Action should be open and chamber flagged, or the muzzle pointed at the ceiling or floor while being handled.

            DO NOT bring anything loaded or any loaded magazines for sale. The safety committee will be checking that firearms for sale are in a safe condition (unloaded, open, and flagged).

            DO NOT bring illegal items to sell.

            DO follow all NC and federal laws for private transfer of firearms.

            Setup will begin in the clubhouse around 9. Plan to be set up by 10.

            We have tables in the clubhouse, first come, first serve, no more than 1 table per member. Please share tables if possible.

            If you have a folding table that you can bring, please do just in case we run out of space. If the weather is nice we may overflow to outside the clubhouse.

            You are responsible for your stuff. You may want to get together with another member to share a table so one can cover all the stuff while the other browses the other tables.

            Ensure that all buyers have either a member or guest badge.

            Price your items ahead of time.

            Bring appropriate boxes, containers, etc... for buyers to carry off what you are selling.

            Buyers:

            All firearms must be handled safely at all times! Action should be open, or the muzzle pointed at the ceiling or floor.

            ASK THE SELLER to hand you any firearm you are interested in. Both the seller and potential buyer should ensure the firearm is clear (no mag, no ammo in gun or chamber).

            Please be considerate to the sellers unloading and setting up. Don't expect to get into the clubhouse before 10 unless you are a seller.

            Just as for guests on the range, the _member_ is responsible for checking in guests at the kiosk, and for their conduct while at the club. You will need a member or guest badge to purchase.

            Bring cash.
